So yesterday I signed up for LA Fitness. I'm really excited because I finally want to start working on having a great body. I've been in the 160s for way too long, so I'm going to begin a weight training program and healthy eating. Today I'm going to see a trainer to do my first assessment, and I hope he can give me a few tips on what to work on this month.
I'm considering seeing a trainer probably once every 3 - 4 weeks. It may be a little expensive, but if I could have someone to just switch it up for me and help me get to my goal, all the better. It would be nice to sit down with someone and talk food, do some exercise examples, and then I can go on my merry way and work out on my own.
I've been deficient in Vitamin D and B12. As of late I've been serious about taking my vitamins, and after a few weeks I feel a difference in terms of my fatigue and attention span. Who knows, it may be a placebo effect, but it seems to be working. I even had enough motivation to go to the gym.
Anyway, everything is going great, otherwise. I've been happy with my boyfriend, work is going okay, so overall I don't have much to complain about.
This picture at the bottom was when I was around 155 a few months ago. I'm 166 now, so I hope to be 155 again soon. I should be, hopefully by the middle of next month. :) Wish me luck.

I used to be great at counting calories. These days, however, I'm awful. I don't know what's wrong with me. I could blame it on a lot of things, but at the end of the day I'm not tracking what I'm eating nearly as well as I should. I weighed myself and am slowly creeping up, and that's scary. I weighed in at 168 lbs this morning. I've gained 12 lbs that honestly took a LONG time for me to lose. There are a few things I definitely need to change.
For one, I need a gym membership. Unlike WV, here in Miami it rains practically every day, and as nice as it is to be outside most days, when it does rain I end up sabotaging myself by not going.
Two, I need a plan to count calories. I've been awful at it and practically hating myself over it. The biggest problem is going out to eat, and counting calories. I know I should be able to use a guide-- such as for veggie sushi from a local restaurant, I can just use the sushi calorie count from a large chain. Not the same, but I feel it will help keep me on track when I need it.
Thankfully my medical issue has been resolved, and I've been doing a lot better in terms of anxiety. I definitely attribute it to the birth control pills.
Anyway, I can't keep up like this. I would kill to lose a good 20 lbs. I WILL do this, and I'm signing up for the gym TODAY!

So I realized as of late I have had tremendous anxiety. I had a "crazy moment" with my boyfriend, where I was in bed sleeping and I woke up to him still being at the computer room at midnight. I've also been stressed out about my health. I've started birth control about 2 months ago, and as of late every time I have sex or do "strenuous" activity (running), I end up bleeding. This has been going on and simply does NOT stop. So I made an appointment with the gyno next week. Hopefully by then it goes away, but I still need to discuss it with her and do tests just in case. No pain though, thankfully.
I knew I've been deficient in vitamin D and B12 in a while so I went ahead and bought supplements for it. I hope it helps give me a boost in energy. I know I definitely need it. I absolutely need to run today, so once I'm done with school advisement I'm heading straight to the track.
Hope all of you are well! I'm yawning as I type!

Today I'm happy to say that I weighed in at 163.6 lbs. When I came back from El Salvador I was nearly 170 again, so I'm happy I'm once again under 165. However, I have been stressed out to oblivion because my best childhood friend almost died this week, so I'm proud I haven't been mindlessly stress eating, to say the least. I have been visiting him constantly and having late nights, because I know he needs me there for him. I brought him some miso soup yesterday and his eyes widened with excitement, and that's all I could ask for.
Outside of that, everything has felt like it's been at a standstill. I haven't been running, ouch, but to be fair it's always raining. I do know I have to get back on it, and hopefully tomorrow I can gain the motivation to go out and run again. I feel like my life is in its proper place when I run, so I know it's something I need to do. I also wish I would write more on SP, so once again, I will try to make it happen. Thankfully I use my food tracker as much as possible.
Anyway, I promised some more pictures from when I went to El Salvador. :) If you have any questions you're always welcomed to ask. Here they are!
Have a good weekend, all! :)

Since being with Mathew I have been *so* lazy. Just snuggling and going out to eat has been bliss. However, I think this time I really am serious to continue on with my workout/eating plans. I've felt so fat and blah, and frankly it's because I've been eating like crap. Not awful, but just too much food overall. I even eat more than Mat! So I really need to watch myself and try to get to my goal weight. All it would take would be a solid 5 months to reach my goal, if not less. I'm not who I used to be, but if I'm not careful, I definitely can be! So since I've been back (Tuesday) I have been counting my calories to the tee, and buying food which I can easily count calories for. :)
So anyway, a big reason why I've been slacking is because Mat and I planned a trip to El Salvador. It was so awesome! Here are just a few pictures for you guys:
Looking forward to my weigh-in in two weeks! :) Hopefully at that point I'll be where I left off on my tracker. Cheers!
